Living life right in Austin

The beauty of Austin is that it’s not hard to have an amazing time. From the iconic Franklin BBQ to the live music scene in the South Congress neighborhood, where the SXSW music festival was born, all your senses will be delighted.

The abundance of green space in Austin means it’s easy to get into nature and cool off with a swim, but you can also find even more thrilling adventures outside of the city center.

Austin favorites

Whether you’re more of a lounger or an active outdoorsy type, you’ll find just the right spot to make your trip pop.

Zilker Park

Potentially the most attractive feature of Austin, Zilker Park is home to Lady Bird Lake, excellent hiking and biking, the epic Barton Springs Pool, and iconic festivals like Austin City Limits.

The Continental Club

With six decades of history on this stage, this club is the heart of Austin’s famous music scene, so put on your most respectable dancing shoes and get ready to boogie next to someone famous.

Congress Bridge

You know a city is unpretentious when one of the favorite local activities is gathering at sunset to watch millions — yes, millions — of bats flutter to life and take off from this beautiful Congress Ave bridge.

The trip started off rocky - license plates not matching the reservation, not being able to find the car or get a response from the host - we finally got to the car an hour past tour reservation. Darren waived our mileage limit and let us bring the car back with less than a full tank to right the inconvenience. His team was very polite. We left a pair of sunglasses in the car and the cleaner drove to us as we were walking to give them to us! Price was much better than any rental in Boston and was a good location from the airport. Would recommend!
Ty L.- 20 July 2021
Darren was super responsive and respectful. He was even quite accommodating and flexible with our return plans, which took a lot of stress out of the trip. The car was in good condition, and Darren knew about all the (very) minor dings/issues and was reassuring about them. He was clear we wouldn't be charged extra when we noticed something after check-in. A really convincing first trip with Turo!

This was my first time using TURO and honestly I was a little unsure about it. Now, I’m a fan and SwiftRentz LLC made it possible. Great experience from start to finish they were there every step of the way. I have another trip next month to Austin and I plan to use them again. In fact, I highly recommend them vice car rental agency.
James D.- 18 August 2021
Clean new car! The communication was above and beyond fantastic: swift and clear! Would definitely rent a car again with SwiftRentz on my next trip to Austin.

Hit the road

While there are other big cities in Texas and the United States you can easily get to from Austin, there are plenty of smaller getaways for a quieter time away from the Music Capital.

Longhorn Cavern

It’s not every day you get to explore underground caves carved out by a river. Make the one-hour drive northwest for a mild walking tour or wild spelunking adventure.

Dripping Springs

Just a 45-minute drive from Austin, Dripping Springs’ name really says it all. Go for a swim in the totally unreal sparkling waters at the natural Hamilton Pool, and peep a historic building or two downtown.

Wimberley

This little town is packed full of Texan specials, including two incredible swimming holes — Blue Hole and Jacob’s Well — and the Bella Vista Olive farm.

This was my first time using Turo and Paige has set the bar high! Paige provided detailed instructions on retrieving the vehicle which was easy and time efficient! Completely contactless and FAST. I hope any future reservations through Turo meet Paige’s standards. 100 percent easier than going to a rental agency and waiting in line forever. Thank you Paige!

Great car! Lots of options, drove nicely, and in great shape for a 10 year old vehicle. Also, surprisingly good gas mileage for a car that size, so the hybrid really helped. First time using Turo, so was unfamiliar with the process, but detailed instructions before and during the rental process really helped. We picked the car up and dropped off in airport parking and was very easy.

Fantastic vehicle in great shape - with all the latest electronics. Stereo and Adaptive Cruise Control in this vehicle are superb. The host was very responsive and helpful for our first Turo rental. Drop-off and pick-up service was also a real upgrade from a traditional rental agency experience. Highly recommended.

Victoria was a gem and made my trip an absolute pleasure. This vehicle is clean, well kept, and a blast to drive. The GPS and cellular connectivity made all of my getting around simple and enjoyable. I hd large amounts of luggage and the cargo space was sufficient. The stereo system was superb and the performance of the SVJ makes this particular rental a very special one for the price. Highly recommend both the vehicle and its owner to all using Turo.

Great rental experience overall. My flight was scheduled to land after all the traditional car rental companies were closed (after 10pm) but Handifleet had the SUV prepared for me with a self check in process. I appreciated the clear, up front instructions provided by Handifleet. The SUV is very spacious, in good condition and clean. Acceleration is really good. Note that this SUV has spongy brakes, so if you rent it, pay attention on Austin roads because the drivers there like to suddenly stop.

Great experience renting from handi fleet. Car was in great condition and was perfect for our trip to Austin. One recommendation i would have is if you are picking up the car from the airport, be sure to be very accurate about your estimated pick up time to insure you do not accrue additional fees in the parking lot.

This was my first trip ever with Turo . Vadim's service was exceptional and probably set too high of a standard. Within five minutes, of contacting him from the airport the car was delivered and check-in was a breeze. The vehicle was extremely clean and drove exceptionally well. Check out was the easiest I've ever had a rental car within a minute of showing up at the departure lane at the airport Vadim was there again and again it was extremely easy. It's very hard to believe that I actually saved a significant amount of money and received the best (concierge) customer service ever when renting a car.

Great contactless rental close to the domain. The car was clean, and Brooke was in good communication to accommodate changes to pickup and return times.

10/10 for both Clayton and the Jag. The car is unbelievable. Sophisticated yet sporty and aggressive yet refined. And it's basically brand new! You won't find a better host and car for the price in Austin. Turns heads everywhere and has a sound that speaks to the soul. Clayton is an amazing host as well. Extremely accommodating, friendly, and very communicative. Very easy to work with and will absolutely rent again!

Karla was an excellent host and a pleasure to work with. She was very timely in dropping off her car and was always ready to answer any questions or concerns that arose during our trip. We found her Lexus was well maintained and far superior to renting a car through a traditional rental car company both in quality and price. Her Lexus is equipped with back-up camera, blind spot detectors, and an on-board navigation system that helped keep us safe and oriented throughout our trip in Austin. Would happily book again!

Car was exactly as presented. Charles made it so easy to pickup at the airport. He sent us the garage info and lockbox code and we were off. He was super communicative and was ok with us extending by 30 minutes through TURO. The parking garage price was just $17.00 as he dropped the car off earlier that day. Would absolutely do business with Charles again.

We came down from Austin and drove to San Antonio to see my son who’s in the Air Force. Matthew was very accommodating, I made it very easy in and out. The vehicle was very awesome and brand new, we actually kicked off our shoes and wiped everything down because He still had that new smell of a new car. He went above and beyond and helped us with some of the navigations because we’re from Florida. I highly recommend using Matthew and a teacher regardless if it’s in your price range or not. Coming from someone that used to rent out their vehicle via Turo in the past he’s your man! Lastly the gas mileage was insane… The highbred is actually making us look into buying this vehicle. We did a lot of driving and it only took 25 bucks to fill up the tank.

My experience renting the 2021 Porsche Macan from David was nothing short of exceptional. He was able to meet me at my gate once I arrived in Austin and we did the exchange in a safe and public area where we conducted our inspection. The car is brand new (with new car smell and all) and drove great while we were exploring Austin and Houston for the weekend. David was a great host and was super accommodating - even dropping us off at our departure gate. If you’re ever in Austin and looking for a great car and even greater host - look no further. David’s your guy!
